Today more than ever sport can inspire, give courage and hope for the future as it is a powerful tool to reinforce fraternity and cooperation. In the present crisis, the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace celebrated on April 6th, is a propitious day to send a strong message of global solidarity and reinforce our bonds with each other in an indissoluble way through sport. This year organize a digital initiative or participate in the #WhiteCard campaign on social media to be part of a global and digital solidarity movement.
